Corrected entry: The melon that Aladdin and Abu swipe before they spot Jasmine is a watermelon. When they open the melon, the insides are light green honeydew melon with the seeds already scooped out. The melon should have a pink with black watermelon seeds interior. The skin type design and coloring shown is unique to watermelons. Some modern varieties have golden flesh. The watermelon may have not been ripe, but if that were the case, the interior would be white, and would not "make your taste buds dance and sing" as the vendor claims.Mike Wotton
Corrected entry: Throughout the movie, the Arabic writing shown are not really Arabic. None of them even ressemble actual arabic letters.
Corrected entry: In the beginning of the film, the vendor gets a match that he strikes out of nowhere.
Corrected entry: Middle Eastern religions to this day prohibit men from wearing jewelry made from gold. For a man to ever wear gold is a sin worthy of eternal damnation. Sultan himself says "Praise Allah" and "Allah Forbid" any number of times. The Mystic Blue Diamond Ring he is wearing is in a yellow gold setting, obvious in the close-up in Jafar's quarters.Mike Wotton
Corrected entry: When Jasmine and her father are next to the fountain talking about the law forcing a Princess to marry a Prince, Jasmine opens the bird cage and takes out one bird, but leaves the door open as she and he father talk. The bird is replaced a few minutes later and the door is finally shut. After the conversation by the fountain, Jasmine returns to the bird cage, opens the doors, and the birds immediately fly away as a symbol of Jasmine's desire for freedom. Why didn't the caged birds fly away when the door was open for so long a few minutes earlier? They wasted no time to make a break for freedom when the cage was opened the second time.Mike Wotton
Corrected entry: When the apple vendor threatens to cut off Jasmine's hand, Aladdin rushes in, grabs the sword from the vendor, and hands it to Jasmine, who hides the sword behind her back. Immediately following, Aladdin takes Jasmine by the shoulders and says "I've been looking all over for you." Notice that her hands are now in front of her and the sword is nowhere to be seen.
Corrected entry: The rule of entering the "Cave of Wonders" spoken to Aladdin by the Cave itself is, " Touch Nothing But the Lamp". It is not until Abu snatches the ruby in the Lamp Room scene that the Cave qualifies the original edict to, " You have touched the forbidden TREASURE". Aladdin and Abu have touched the Magic Carpet plenty of times before this point.Mike Wotton
Corrected entry: When the Sultan is flying on the magic carpet, Iago the parrot crashes into a pillar and gets his teeth knocked out. In the next shot of Iago, his teeth are all intact.
Corrected entry: Genie and Magic Carpet are playing chess. Genie tells Magic Carpet, "okay, move". Carpet only has a king, a bishop and two pawns. Carpet picks up the king and moves it fully across the board to capture Genie's queen and put him into check, (possibly checkmate). A king may only move one space at a time in any direction, therefore, that move was illegal. Afterwards Genie says, "I'm being beaten by a rug", and does not question the legality of the move.Mike Wotton
Corrected entry: The jacket for the original home video VHS release of Aladdin has flaws in the images on the front and back covers. The huge image of Aladdin on the cover is shown in his "Street Rat" clothing riding the Magic Carpet with Jasmine behind him. This never happened in the movie. Jasmine only rode the Magic Carpet with Aladdin dressed as Prince Ali or wearing his closing scene "Honeymoon" attire. Another error is that Jasmine is wearing a green outfit that was always shown as blue in the movie. The back cover shows the Oasis scene incorrectly. Aladdin is at the table from the "I'm your Maitre'd" part of the "Friend Like Me" song. Genie is holding the microphone from when he first asks Aladdin his name. Genie is also wearing the "Let's make some magic" magician's outfit which is missing its giant grey cuffs.Mike Wotton
Corrected entry: When Abu is on the bursting lava rocks in the Cave of Wonders, right before the last two rocks blow up you can hear him say "Holy shit", if you turn your volume up.
Corrected entry: When Jafar does his little ditty he says "Say hello to your precious Prince Ali" and transforms Aladdin into his beggar self. Jasmine acts shocked, but she already knew that Aladdin was "the boy from the marketplace," so she shouldn't be surprised to see him dressed as he was in the marketplace.
Corrected entry: When the thief is first going to go into the Cave of Wonders, the lion has bottom teeth all the way across. When it shows him stepping into the cave, the bottom teeth are gone.
Corrected entry: Sultan is concerned that Jasmine find a suitor before her eighteenth birthday because "He isn't getting any younger". He seems to be 70 years old in the movie. (Disney had no official "age" for Sultan.) The law stated that a Princess must marry a Prince before her eighteenth birthday. Jasmine is now just shy of 18 years old herself. So Jasmine's mother must have married the Sultan when she was seventeen years old to follow the letter of the law and the Sultan was fifty two years old? And that presumes that they had conceived Jasmine the first year they were married. (Sultan's 70 years minus Jasmine's apparent current age of 18 is 52 years old). Well, as Sultan said himself, "Her mother wasn't nearly so picky".Mike Wotton
Corrected entry: In the dungeon scene, Jafar in disguise as an old man has just told Aladdin of the treasure. Iago, the parrot, pokes his head out from under the shawl to say, " Jafar, can you hurry up, I'm dying in here." The creators of the film must have intended for the audience to know Iago was concealed in that disguise for a reason besides to point out Jafar in disguise, but Iago was never heard from again throughout the "Cave of Wonders" scenes. Maybe Jafar dropped Iago somewhere when he picked up the horse he rode to the cave.Mike Wotton
Corrected entry: The biggest thing that stands in Aladdin's way with Jasmine is the law (a princess can only marry a prince). Instead of wishing to be a prince, why doesn't he wish that the law be different? Honesty is a key element to this movie, and something that the Genie stresses, still no one thinks of this alternative to lying?
Corrected entry: In the movie all of the guards have swords. The blades design is basically small near the hilt (the handle of the sword), and gradually gets wider and rounder near the end of it. Well, the sheath (the carrying case) of the sword is the same shape as the sword. Because of this, it would be impossible for the swords to be slid back into the sheath, the reason being that the larger end of the blade would not fit through the top of the case, for it's too small.
